McLaren 2020 Models: Complete Lineup, Prices, Specs & Reviews

Sports Series / Super Series / Ultimate Series / Race Cars

Check out the complete 2020 McLaren model lineup, including the latest starting prices, with links to reviews about every model. McLaren’s rise is remarkable. Prior to 2011 it had only produced a handful of production models and a collaboration with Mercedes. The pace of new model development at McLaren since then is unheard of in supercar manufacturer circles.

A myriad of supercars, sports cars and hypercars have been launched since then and frankly each new car is better than the last which says a lot about the venerable automaker. While many argue that most of the McLaren range today is basically the same formula, we argue that each current McLaren model is unique enough that it speaks to a specific kind of buyer. Whether it be the Senna for the millionaire track maniac to the Speedtail for the billionaire looking to cross Europe really quickly to the 570S for the executive wanting something better than a 911 Turbo S, they all have a role to play.

Check out the latest Mclaren cars, the current McLaren models lineup. We have split the cars into the three-tiered McLaren groupings of Sports Series cars, Super Series supercars and Ultimate Series hypercars.

 

Current McLaren Sports Series Cars

In some ways these are the perfect McLaren cars. The Sports Series cars are not as extreme as the Super Series cars, but they are still crazy fast, awesome driving machines that are cheaper and more practical. What isn’t there to like.  Think of these cars as competitors to Porsche GT models and you are right on the money. They are super light, have incredible power and a chassis designed for pure driving fun. The Sports Series  model range offers unparalleled feel and connection to the road. Heart-stoppingly exciting and rewarding to drive but also highly useable. Yes please.

McLaren 540C

McLaren 540C

Entry Level Assassin

A mid-mounted 533-hp 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 drives the rear wheels of the 540C. This is McLaren’s entry level model. Despite its lower price, the 540C inherits performance-aiding technologies from its pricier siblings such as a system that brakes a rear wheel to help the car around a corner. 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds, 0-124mph in 10.5, a top speed of 199 mph and a power-to-weight ratio of 412 horsepower per ton for impressing your friends. What more could you want for your money?

Mclaren 570S

McLaren 570S Coupe

For The Driver

This is the car you buy when you are sick of your Porsche. It is a true sports car experience, very driver centric with epic performance. We have found the 570S as the perfectly positioned car in the McLaren range. It has more performance than you could ever need on the road. It is lightweight, has direct steering and amazing driving dynamics. It looks like a supercar and enough interior amenities to be comfortable as a daily driver. 911 Turbo or 570S, I know which one I’d take. Cue the 570S please.

Mclaren 570S Spider

McLaren 570S Spider

Perfect Open Top Fun

Basically a 570S with a retractable hardtop, the 570S Spider is awesome. Gone are the days where convertibles were compromised, McLaren it seems has figured out how to make them as good as their coupe siblings. The Spider has the same twin turbo V8 as the coupe as well as the same carbon fibre MonoCell II chassis. Take the top down (15 seconds) and you add a whole host of sounds and sensations that are unique to the Spider. Performance is on par with the 570S coupe (within a 10th of a second to 60 mph and 124 mph).

McLaren 570GT

McLaren 570GT

Practical, Fast, Luxurious 

The 570GT is an interesting model now that McLaren has launched a focused GT model. It adds extra comfort and practicality to the 570 body style. Performance is still tremendous, but it takes the edge off in some ways (which is good). Every bit a McLaren, it’s optimised for the road and makes the ultimate sports car experience one that’s perfect for daily use, longer journeys and weekends away. It has a practical real glass hatch for extra storage and its panoramic glass roof makes the car feel airy and spacious.

Base price: US$203,950
Engine: 3.8L M838TE twin-turbocharged V8
Power: 562 bhp @ 7,500 rpm

McLaren 600LT

McLaren 600LT

Track-Focused Extreme 

The limited-edition 600LT is the ultimate version of McLaren’s 570S/GT range (think of it like the 458 Speciale as to the 458). It uses a variation of 570S’ McLaren’s twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8, in this guise making 592 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque. It has a dual-clutch automatic transmission and is rear wheel drive. The handling is perfectly balanced and reassures you with its predictable nature with the ride a little firm due to its track nature approach. Standard carbon-ceramic brake discs, extensive carbon fiber and that massive wing let you know this is a limited edition car designed for the track. Capable of eye-watering performance it is deserving of the LT name.

Base price: US$242,500
Engine: M838TE 3.8L twin-turbocharged V8
Power: 592 bhp @ 7,500 rpm
Torque: 457 lb-ft @ 5,500–6,500rpm
0-60 mph: 2.9 sec
0-124 mph: 8.2 sec
Top Speed: 204 mph

McLaren 600LT Spider

McLaren 600LT Spider

Extreme With Heightened Sensations

Like the 600LT Coupe, a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 with 592 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque shoots the LT Spider to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. Getting to 124 mph takes just an extra two-tenths of a second compared to the hardtop. You step on the throttle, wait for a tinge of turbo lag, then boom, the ferocious revving and blistering straight-line speed hits you. Rinse and repeat. Unlike most convertibles, this Spider will also handle in the corners. It is easily my favorite car on the market today. No shortfall versus the coupe. An epic car.

Base price: US$256,500
Engine: M838TE 3.8L twin-turbocharged V8
Power: 592 bhp @ 7,500 rpm
Torque: 457 lb-ft @ 5,500–6,500rpm
